Haspa Marathon Hamburg: 13 SEPTEMBER 2020

Recommended Posts

Hamburg marathon says they are going to run the event with 10,000 participants (one of the organisers delivered a talk about how they would run the event with social distancing and have written up info here https://tyrelady.wordpress.com/2020/06/09/dairy-entry-future-proofing-events-with-the-environment/  - it is a long blog post)

They had some other information on their website about how they were going to start in blocks + wearing a mask only at the start and when going thru the finish, but all that information seems to have been removed now and recently been replaced with an announcement

@Lady Ice  At this stage, it is still advisable not to have mass events as people will gather, leading to big crowds and covid-19 infection for more persons.

Good and long blog write-up post you have there.

wow... super long post @Lady Ice... i rem reading about the Hamsburg marathon organisers describing how they are going to ensure the safety of all before reopening their registration. It seemed that at least they have taken a step back to really consider all 360deg by listening to others. It is only 2 mths left so unsure if they can manage to pull this off though..

Yeah - had attended some of the meetings. There was a lot that was said! Should have broken it up into 2 posts..... but work lah - no time to think any more.  It will be interesting to see if he is able to pull it off cos the Hamburg organiser was super confident. However Germany is also super cautious so he is probably fighting against the govt regulations where only up to 5000 could do a run. For the number of road closures, stations etc, believe they would be out of pocket.

Yes, i hope they really make this a good race so that it becomes a good case study for the rest of the world...

Just looked at their website. Looks like Govt has made them postpone until 2021. So no trial case.

which country is that? or rather any marathon races that you know... and if they have done any safety precautions ensure safety of runners? Marathon event of 100...hmn.... sounds like a group of runners running LSD together... hahah

yes - in the UK the small events are happening. Would also expect the small events in Germany to be running as they were allowed to have up to 5000 participants as long as social distancing, masks and hygiene were observed/improved. Dunno about now as heard Germany's numbers have started to rise again.
